You need to check the tcm for codes too. The s3 light is like the check engine light for the tcm. The VSS code might be your problem.

90 Honda Prelude misses sometimes

Maybe the crank speed sensor is faulty - would confuse ECU and show wierd rev counter results. Any engine check-light (MIL) or stored error codes?

How do you set the timing on a 92 honda prelude

Hi there. Firstly you need a strobe light, I hope you have one of these. Firstly when the engine is stopped, you need to locate the timing marks on the crank pulley - they are a series of indentations on the crank pulley and you will see the pointer on the crank pulley cover. The largest indentation on the pulley is TDC (Top Dead Centre) and the three smaller indentations are your timing marks. When the engine is at normal operating temperture and idling, using the strobe light, the centre small timing mark should be aligned with the pointer on the crank pulley cover. If it's not aligned, loosen the distrubutor body and turn in the appropriate direction to either advance or ****** the ignition timing. Hope this helps, Scottech.
